HS Girls Nationals Set for This Weekend
School Age - Girls

STANFORD, Calif. - The Emirates Airline USA Rugby Girls’ High School National Championship Invitational will cap off a showcase weekend for Women’s rugby at Stanford University this coming Saturday and Sunday.

The Girls Championship will be held in conjunction with the Division I & II Women’s College Championships on May 12-13. USA Rugby’s Youth and High School Director Kurt Weaver says combining the event with the Colleges clearly defines the player’s pathway.

“With this event, the best get to play with the best, and the Coaches get to recruit. It’s a great showcase of the game and pathway from young ages and beyond.”
Adding to the excitement will be a special appearance by USA Eagles Captain Todd Clever. Clever will be on hand Saturday, May 19 from 2-3 p.m. for autographs and pictures.

The action on the pitch features a rematch of last year’s championship match between top-ranked Fallbrook and No. 18 Amazons in the quarterfinals.

It's also notable that some of the top-ranked teams in the country will not be competing, such as No. 5 Mother Lode, No. 2 Summit, and No. 9 Lady Barbarians.

Tickets for the event are $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. You can get your tickets the day of the event at the stadium. Full bracket, schedule, and event details can be found below and at usarugby.org.

Fans can also catch all the day two action, being webcast LIVE from Stanford on the USA Rugby UStream Channel.
